Port of Paulsboro to receive $1.5M for water infrastructure improvements

By ,

The Port of Paulsboro will receive a $1.58 million grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration for a water infrastructure improvement project.

The project is expected to create 150 jobs and generate $10 million in private investment to support the installation of a new water main to the Paulsboro Marine Terminal and provide potable water and fire protection.

The construction of this water line is critical to port operations and will facilitate the development of an additional 150 acres of land for businesses that trade, ship, process or distribute maritime cargoes and products.

U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross, D-1st District, said the project was made possible by the regional planning efforts led by the South Jersey Economic Development District.
